CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is announcing more initiatives focused on getting Nevada Hispanics on board with her campaign.

Clinton’s campaign announced events statewide within the next week, including a Latino-to-Latino phone bank in Reno on Monday and canvassing Tuesday in the heavily Hispanic community of East Las Vegas.

The campaign also appointed four organizers focused on Latino outreach in Reno, Las Vegas and Fernley.

Nevada campaign director Emmy Ruiz said the efforts aim to get more people to choose Clinton in the caucus.

The announcement comes shortly after Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush unveiled a 26-member Latino leadership team focused on reaching Nevada’s sizeable Hispanic voting bloc.

Clinton will be in Las Vegas for the Democratic debate Oct. 13, and will also campaign in Nevada the following day.
